The magic of Raku firing

The magic of Raku firing

October 01, 2018

Chela recently journeyed down the Great Ocean Road to Lorne to visit local potter Andrew Allen spending the afternoon raku firing a collection of pieces. 'There's nothing quite like seeing the process of what happens in the kiln firsthand. I'm still buzzing from the experience!' Chela says. 

Raku firing is a process where work is removed from the kiln while red hot and subjected to reduction by being placed in closed containers of combustible materials. This blackens raw clay and causes crazing in the glaze surface. The results are organic, unpredictable and pure magic.

Come and join us on Sunday, November 11th for a day of raku firing at the Takeawei studio in Torquay under the guidance of Andrew Allen. Only 8 places available so book now or find out more about the workshop here

All skill levels are welcome!
